Understand the machining conditions of the plastic buckets we use.

- Jul 26, 2019-

Because the properties of plastic are different from those of metal and wood, the thermal conductivity of plastic is poor, the coefficient of thermal expansion and the modulus of elasticity are low. When the clamp or tool is too pressurized, it is easy to cause deformation, it is easily melted by heat during cutting, and it is easy to adhere to the tool. Therefore, when machining plastics, the tools used and the corresponding cutting speeds must be adapted to the plastic characteristics. Commonly used mechanical processing methods include sawing, shearing, punching, turning, planing, drilling, grinding, polishing, and threading.
